Century City embraces Earth Hour 2014
The World Wildlife Fund is calling on everyone worldwide to switch off lights and electrical appliances for one hour between 8:30pm – 9:30pm, on Saturday, 29 March.
We (the CCPOA) will be switching off all non-essential lighting within Century City, and while a number of residential and commercial developments have already indicated they will be doing their bit, we would like to encourage our entire Century City family – both residents and businesses – to join us in this initiative in support of Earth Hour 2014.
This week, Intaka Island celebrated Earth Hour with Fairmont High School by taking part in their Green Expo (which was their celebration of Earth Hour). The expo consisted of a variety of exhibitors all demonstrating products, designs and initiatives to illustrate “green thinking” to the learners.
